Oh my. Oh my. Oh my. I have not finished reading “The Pickwick Papers,” but I will eventually. I am almost halfway through the book. I stopped and took a breather at Chapter 28. In the past, I’ve read, “David Copperfield” and it is my favorite. I read “The Old Curiosity Shop,” and “Great Expectations.” Without a doubt, “The Pickwick Papers” is the most challenging to read. I will finish it, but, alas, I do not know when. When I finish it, I probably won’t update my blog. So, what you are reading now, is all the words of wisdom (ha!) you’re going to get.
I would say, in a nutshell, “The Pickwick Papers” are the adventures or misadventures of Mr. Pickwick, Mr. Tupman, Mr. Snodgrass and Mr. Winkle. They certainly meet some interesting characters on their travels through London and the countryside of England. If you decide to read it, prepare yourself for a long, slow journey.
